Gay news, Gay Rights ranking Europe, Zimbabwe arrests, John McCain and the gays

26 05 2010

The International Gay and Lesbian Association has released its Rainbow Europe County Index on how legislation affects LGBT people. Sweden is number 1 followed by Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway and Spain. Those 4 have anti-discrimination laws not enshrined in the constitution, like Sweden(but they do mostly use it) From the EU, Cyprus, Latvia and Poland not good and finished last. From non EU countries Turkey, Russia and Ukraine did bad.

Two members of a Zimbabwe Gay organization have been arrested. At first the government and police said it was because of drugs and porn but yesterday it was made clear they got a letter from former SF mayor Brown that was critical about that monster of a President Mugabe. Mugabe described gays as less than pigs and dogs. The 2 men are still in jail, hopefully unharmed…

Senator John McCain is anti gay marriage, opposes gay adoption, against gays in the military and against ENDA(discrimination against gays in workplace). On the other hand his wife has been a vocal supporter of gay marriage, his daughter is super pro-gay and now he hired a gay man, Mark Buse to run his campaign for re-election of Senator from Arizona. He should listen to his inner circle more.

NY Pride will be shorter than ever in a cost-cutting measure by the NYPD. It will go from 36/5th instead of 52/5th but still ends in Christopher Street. Apparently the same thing will happen to all parades in NY. I think it is totally fine, more crowd on a denser area and less to walk for the marcher in the (maybe) heat.

Gay news, Fred Phelps awarded money from Court ,McCain on NSFW website, Michael Lucas wins court case ,English Patient gay

6 04 2010

Unbelievable but true. The family of a dead soldier have to pay the Westboro Baptist Church from Fred Phelps 16500 dollars in lawyer costs. The church protested the funeral of the death straight soldier because “America accepts gays and that is why he deserved to die” Multiple people have come forward to help out the family who wants to take the case to the Supreme Court. The Court decided this way because of freedom of speech. I have a hard time with this, in general I do believe in freedom of speech but in cases like this it is hard to believe in that. Where to draw a line with these things is hard though.

John McCain thought he was all cool by putting a picture on Twitter but he did not know where it would end up. On the nude-website. GuyswithIphones. Very NSFW and pretty funny. Not so much for people wanting to look at hot guys though that all of a sudden see his face.

The porn company of mogul Michael Lucas won a court-case brought up by the copyright holders of the Fellini movie “La Dolce Vita”. Lucas’ porn version of the movie was one of the most expensive in porn history. The judge said the alleged copyright holders could not show that they were indeed the copyright owners and that the Fellini movie could just as well be public domain. I thought 90 % of porn is a parody of a regular movie!

The highly successful oscar-winning movie ” The English Patient,” was based on a spy that was in actually gay. The Hungarian de Almasy was in love with a young nazi soldier called Hans. Letter that surfaced in Germany found this out he also not died of an overdose but of amoebic dysentery in 1951 after never having slept with a woman.





Gay News, college teacher says homosexuality is sin, christian leader tells it like it is, poll on gays in military

10 02 2010

A biology teacher at a college in Fresno relied on the bible to do his teachings. He said gays are a burden/threat to society and that homosexuality is a biological mistake. Of course many students were offended and a complaint has been brought up against the school and the teacher. Someone needs to get his ass fired.

Pastor Ken Eastburn who leads a network of worshippers in California and Colorado says that regardless of the outcome of Prop 8 christians should worry less about imposing their own morals on others and worry more about their own life.He says it is a common mistake for christians to spent time energy and money advocating for a morality that is consistent with their faith while in fact they should be focusing on themselves. Hear, hear, I am sick of all these so-called christians that are against gay marriage but visit prostitutes or have affairs themselves. Hypocrites.

Since DADT( no openly gays in military) has been in the news a lot lately with most people wanting it to be repealed except people like John McCain ans Sarah Palin, there was a big poll done by Quinnipiac to show what Americans feel about that. 57% of people say they feel gays should be able to serve in the military. But 54% say gays should face restrictions on exhibiting their sexual orientation on the job. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?? Also most people believe the Pentagon should not provide for domestic partners of gay staff and people are split on whether heterosexual staff should be required to share quarter with the gays. WTF??? How discriminatory is that, people of America. What if someone would say that about white and black gays.
